Quilts that Tell a Story- Anne Sonner (April, 2016 Guild Meeting Program)

In April of 2017, Anne Sonner visited our guild from southern California.  Her work includes very carefully chosen bits of fabric, embellishments, and photos printed on fabric that have history and meaning.  These things are expertly placed in such a way as to tell a story.  The story may be the history of someone from a past generation, or it may commemorate an event such as a wedding or earning the rank of Eagle Scout. 
 Anne's presentation was rich with color and was very engaging.  The stories she shared as she showed her quilts were as unique as her beautiful work.

Anne also gave a workshop and guided the students to create their own quilts with a story.
